Déjà Vu Art and Fine Craft Show Seeks Artist Vendors


On November 11, 2017, the Déjà Vu Art and Fine Craft Show will be held at The Commons, a civic area in downtown Columbus, Indiana. Having opened just six years ago, this spectacular facility is a great place to show your art and fine crafts.

Last year, the Déjà Vu Art and Fine Craft Show was named an Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Project. In keeping with the celebration of Indiana’s 200th year of statehood, they challenged artists to create one piece of art or fine craft inspired with a Hoosier theme, and it was very successful. They plan to issue a new challenge for the 2017 show, and it will be announced later.

  •  This is a juried show, and only 60 applicants who reuse and/or recycle items and a few who create their work from natural or sustainable materials will be accepted.
  • The show hours are 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., EST.
  • Exhibit space will be approximately 10’x10′. Chairs will be provided and tables are available, free of charge, to those who are among the first to request them.
  • Awards include Best of Show, First, Second, and Third Places, and four Honorable Mention prizes. Also, an Artists’ Challenge will be sent in July, and the winner of the award also will receive a cash prize.
